Ukulwa kwabantwana bakoIsrayeli lamaKhanani

Kwasekusithi emva kokufa kukaJoshuwa abantwana bakoIsrayeli babuza i Nkosi a  besithi: Ngubani ozasenyukelela ukuyamelana lamaKhanani kuqala b  ukulwa emelene labo? I Nkosi yasisithi: UJuda uzakwenyuka; khangelani, ngilinikele ilizwe esandleni sakhe. UJuda wasesithi kuSimeyoni umfowabo: Yenyuka lami enkathweni yami ukuze silwe simelene lamaKhanani; lami-ke ngizahamba lawe enkathweni yakho c . USimeyoni wasehamba laye. UJuda wasesenyuka, njalo i Nkosi yanikela amaKhanani lamaPerizi esandleni sabo; bawatshaya eBezeki d , amadoda azinkulungwane ezilitshumi. Basebefica uAdoni-Bezeki eBezeki, balwa bemelene laye, bawatshaya amaKhanani lamaPerizi. Kodwa uAdoni-Bezeki wabaleka, baxotshana laye, bambamba, baquma izithupha zezandla zakhe lezenyawo zakhe. UAdoni-Bezeki wasesithi: Amakhosi angamatshumi ayisikhombisa aqunywe izithupha zezandla zawo lezenyawo zawo ayedobha ngaphansi kwetafula lami. Njengokwenza kwami e , ngokunjalo uNkulunkulu ungiphindisele. Basebemusa eJerusalema, wafela khona. Abantwana bakoJuda balwa-ke bemelene leJerusalema f , bayithumba, bayitshaya ngobukhali benkemba, lomuzi bawuthungela ngomlilo.

Emva kwalokho-ke abantwana bakoJuda behla ukuyakulwa bemelene lamaKhanani ayehlala entabeni leningizimu lesihotsheni. 10 UJuda wasehamba wamelana lamaKhanani ayehlala eHebroni g ; lebizo leHebroni kuqala kwakuyiKiriyathi-Arba; batshaya uSheshayi h  loAhimani loTalimayi. 11 Basuka lapho baya bamelana labahlali beDebiri i . Lebizo leDebiri kuqala kwakuyiKiriyathi-Seferi. 12 UKalebi j  wasesithi: Ozatshaya iKiriyathi-Seferi, ayithumbe, ngizamnika uAkisa indodakazi yami ibe ngumkakhe. 13 UOthiniyeli indodana kaKenazi umfowabo kaKalebi, owayemncane kulaye k , waseyithumba; wasemnika uAkisa indodakazi yakhe ukuba ngumkakhe. 14 Kwasekusithi ekufikeni kwakhe wamkhuthaza ukuthi acele kuyise insimu; wasesehla kubabhemi, uKalebi wasesithi kuye: Ulani? 15 Wasesithi kuye: Ngipha isibusiso. Njengoba ungiphe ilizwe elomileyo, ngipha njalo imithombo yamanzi. UKalebi wasemnika imithombo engaphezulu lemithombo engaphansi.
